If she had one more message to preach about, it would be to encourage Christians to "love, love, and then love some more," inspirational Christian speaker Joyce Meyer says.
During a recent guest sermon at Life.Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Meyer explained that love is the most important thing Jesus said we have to do for ourselves, for others, and for Him.
Meyer, founder of Joyce Meyer Ministries, says that a turning point in her life was learning that it is impossible to be both selfish and happy, saying that although she didn't have financial stresses and had a good husband and children, she was unable to be happy because she was too self-involved.
Then, God spoke to her, telling her "you're not happy because you're selfish."
"It's just not possible to have yourself on your mind all the time and be happy," Meyer says.
She points specifically to John 13:35, which calls on Christians to show their faith to others through love: "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
Non-Christians are "not going to know us by our church attendance or by the bumper sticker in our car," Meyer explains. "The only thing that's going to convince the world that Jesus is real is if we who call ourselves Christians can learn to walk in love everywhere we go."
